What Christians Don‘t Get About Economics

During my time in seminary and the years following, I would hear something from mostly mainline pastors that I didn’t agree with. They would talk about the concept of scarcity and how it was wrong because God is a God of abundance. That would cause me to scratch my head. I knew enough about economics to know that scarcity was not born of greed. Instead, it was saying that there’s only a certain amount of a good and you have to figure out how to best distribute these finite resources.

Why do pastors get this very simple concept wrong?

I got to talk to long-time friend Michael Kruse about economics and faith. Michael is an economist and wants to help Christians understand the “dismal science.” You can listen to it on YouTube and on various podcast platforms such as Spotify. Please give it a listen!
